the invisible man clint eastwood spoke to at this year's rnc convention was given a major honor today. president barack obama was named "time" magazine's person of the year. while being greeted by the son of a white house staffer. that's being a dad right there. and this one shows some family time. president obama is seen here playing in the snow with his daughters at the white house. they need to put more snow on him, don't you think? anyway, times article paints a very clear picture of the president, who works awfully hard for this country, but is bipartisan screening for the senate of the movie "lincoln." i just -- a, i liked the movie. but b, i liked that you all went together, that it was democrats and republicans in the senate going together to find some common ground. the film depicts the good which is attained when public servants put the betterment of the country ahead of short-term political interests. we believe that viewing this film would provide all senators with a positive opportunity to gather and reflect during the holiday season. the movie's themes should hit pretty close to ho
, the coverage, there was an effort to fear but i think they fell off the knowledge. it was clint eastwood and new famous empty chair. suddenly somehow a hollywood actor who was brought in because he had done the ad during the superbowl that seemed to be pro obama, but here he is endorsing mitt romney that was bigger than anything that mitt romney did. that is the most memorable event from a convention that i believe not only did mitt romney stand up but also paul ryan and several hispanics did an excellent job to present a conservative reason to oust president obama. >> nobody remembers the flap over god was going to be on the platform. clint eastwood got all the attention. >> there is a certain rule here. republicans to have learn it. if the whole essence is a tightly choreographed event, then you do that. you put things to help you better, rubio was terrific and videos of the families, those were moving and nobody saw them because they were in the wrong hour, in the middle of it. don't say to clint eastwood, don't go out and wing it. there has been considerable cottage industry of finge
picked ryan, and the wild prelude to the clint eastwood performance. tonight right here on "hardball," the dark aroma of what lies now beneath the dirt so we can understand what it looks like to think and feel your way into an historic disaster. with me are jeff zeleny with "the new york times" and susan milligan who is contributing editor at "u.s. news & world report." you laugh. it's not funny. you both attended that harvard institute of policy forum. last week with top advisers from both the obama and romney campaigns. they just released, by the way, tonight, we have the audio recordings of that not filmed event. we have a real autopsy of what went on behind the scenes during the primaries, the conventions, and the general election on the romney side. let's start with the republican race for the nomination. romney's campaign manager matt rhoades was asked whether his candidate had gone too far to the right on immigration when challenged by texas governor rick perry and whether he had any regret about that. rhoades brings up the romney attacks on perry for calling social security a
impact on. >> bob: i happen to like clint eastwood. and he's a violent -- >> eric: i'm asking you what is the point? >> greg: this is a good point. there was violence in clint eastwood movies but no denying good or eel. he was killing criminals or seeking justice. >> dana: the recent one with him, the older guy, car. >> "gran tarino." with help i can get there. >> bob: what is the tribe that lives next door to him? >> dana: tribe? >> greg: i'm not going to answer that. >> dana: that feels like a trap. >> kimberly: don't answer it. step back from the trap. >> dana: all right. bob is going to tell us in the break. when we come right back, some parents in montana think christmas carols are a new form of bullying. greg is going to explain that one next. ♪ ♪ "special report" starts at 6:00 eastern. now back to new york and "the five." ♪ ♪ >> greg: they know i hate these songs. they are hoping i leave. some parents in montana want to ban christmas songs saying it's bullying. it spells danger to children's self-esteem. they are threatening the sue. they wrote bullying is a hot topic a
, the clint eastwood conversation with an empty chair. eastwood had spoken enthusiastically at a number of gop fund-raisers and so sharifer asked him to do the same thing he had done before successfully at the convention without much success ultimately we now know. let's look at this one. >> i said, you know, are you going to do what we talked about, are you going to talk about what we talked about at these fund raidsers? and he looked at me and said yep. >> make my day? >> it's clint eastwood. you argue with him. >> well, that's not really useful putting together a platform for the president. the night he's accepting the nomination in tampa was not a great convention because of a couple things. one of them being the distraction of eastwood's performance. i liked it as show business. it was out of place obviously, but what do you think of the work they did in terms of prepping that thing? did they do it wrong? or was it all eastwood's number? >> that clearly should not have been in prime time. >> right before the presidential candidate. >> had that happened an hour earlier. it would have been

of the campaign year. clint eastwood's empty chair number, mitt romney's disastrous overseas trip to london, suggesting that the brits weren't up to hosting the olympics. next, it was the uproar when the white house went to war with the catholic bishops by insisting religious organizations cover employees for contraception and barack obama's frozen performance in the first debate? >> i'm going with london. i was there at the time and it was not only the worst moment for mitt romney but the best moment for boris johnson, the mayor of london, when he came out with that fantastic line, "i hear there's some guy named mitt romney." >> i think it was the olympics, too, because it knocked 10 or 12 days out of his campaign, no one in his campaign wanted to go and he went for a show horse. >> he didn't watch the show horse. >> that would have killed his campaign early. if he had gone for greco-roman wrestling. >> why did the show horse hurt? >> it's a high-end, rich people sport. chris: and he had a horse in the race. >> i think that foreign trip was pretty bad, too, but not just because of london b

. >>> you also list -- that moment that we can't forget, though, has clint eastwood at the rnc, there he is, talking to the chair. >> we're going to look back on the conventions, and all we're going to remember is clint oozewood in the chair. this was during a very strong period for the president. the speech he gave himself at the president was not the longest ever, but a very good week, president clinton gave a great speech that rallied the crowd, as did first lady michelle obama for romney, that was a tough week, with clint eastwood and the chair, and that dominated the headlines. so it looked like the president had -- that was because, of course, before he ran into some turbulence. >> talk about that debate. those on the left were very surprised, those on the right also. >> absolutely. this was a key moment in the campaign where it lookedly maybe romney would be able to come back. obama's campaign team always thought this moment was exaggerated. the president's team always thought that was overblown, but certainly this was a big moment in the campaign. the president felt very down afterw
in primetime, the commercial networks. and then in primetime of course was clint eastwood. so the message that got out was not -- >> that was a hail mary, that clint eastwood. it could have been worked but didn't. >> some of the people close to romney were upset by that. talking about the dynamics of the race, the dynamics were of the ground work of obama. >> let's talk about the groundwork. my friend came to me after the election saying we won't believe what we did. she talked about how they have a systemic basis and she's a grown up person my age. she said i would meet one person, they'd meet another. we'd have seven contacts with every voter. even if you had seven contacts with every voter, they could get that person to vote. they made a contact that would convince them they're doing something that would have an effect. not just trying. and it worked. i mean, in every single part of the united states where they needed to win like florida, they did this. romney had none of this. >> the obama campaign had an extraordinary ground game. they decided to do something unprecedented in preside
it off with complete aplumb. they're good at it. >> rose: clint eastwood is a hero of yours but not because of his acting, per se, but because he's a filmmaker. because he gets the business side. > side. >> if you're talking about him in the dollar movies that's about as good as it gets, as far as a cool, iconic here. having said that, though, what you're referring to is early on, i realized i really admired-- even before i made moviees, clint eastwood's relationship with warner brothers, want fact that he didn't go around and do movies with the other studios. he kind of set up shop at warner brothers. if he wanted to do something chancy, he'd do of do it for a lower budget, and they let him do it. he could do what he wanted to do. if he wanted to do one of the "dirty harry" sequels . >> rose: one for you, one for me. >> exactly. the whole idea of creating a family at one studio that you can grow and as long as things don't cost too much you could be able to expand, that really hit me. that's the way to keep your integrity over a long haul. and i'm-- i'm lucky now have that
to everything jimmy said. i agree with everything you said and also note the clint eastwood yelling at the chair moment is sort of symbolic of the entire gop, and the gop is clint eastwood and they're yelling at or disagreeing with an imagined obama who does not actually exist. if they critique the real obama, they might have had a better chance of wooing those independents who are disaffected republicans but when they're doing this extreme thing that rush limbaugh is actually beginning the thought process -- he's the thought leader, it's never going to actually work out for you. that is not realistic. they're living in the alternate reality when even megan kelly has to say, is that real or are these just things you tell yourself as a republican to make yourself feel better? >> jimmy, to that point, math, i feel like the big triumph of math. who knew math would be one of the big stories of 2012? >> in the building behind us they count -- at least sometimes they count votes, sometimes they don't. the great irony is when it comes to elections, you have to count for the number of people that vote f
to clint eastwood wins time's person of the year. >> what do you mean shut up? >> tonight presidential historian douglas brinkley on barack obama, abraham lincoln, and spider-man. good to have you with us tonight, folks. thanks for watching. the president gave all americans a lot to work with today and a lot to think about in the coming weeks. president obama recognizes the mood of the country. there is a real sense of urgency to pass common sense safety laws in the wake of the newtown shooting massacre. the president knows this is going to be a heavy lift. >> that's why i've asked the vice president to lead an effort that includes members of my cabinet and outside organizations to come up with a set of concrete proposals no later than january, proposals that i then intend to push without delay. this is not some washington commission. this is not something where folks are going to be studying the issue for six months and publishing a report that gets read and then pushed aside. >> one of the reasons the president is asking for action without delay is because he knows change can be acco
this popular tumblr page from texts from hillary to clint eastwood's chair. these were just some of the many moments in 2012 in which politics went viral. joining us now for a look back is politico's patrick gavin. one day left in 2012. let's look back and talk about the binders full of women. seemingly trivial moment that may have impacted the election in a big way. >> yeah. you know, i really think that's how twitter has changed politics. you know, i think that a lot of campaigns might think that a comment like that, you would hope, that perhaps somebody was going to get a beer from the frig and might have missed it, but what twitter does is captures these moments that could maybe otherwise get overlooked and focuses the nation's attention. that was the case with the binders full of women comment. romney was not able to live that one down, especially on-line. >> take a lisp. i want to play this one for you. >> i'm sorry, jim. i am going to stop the subsidy to pbs. >> big bird here, patrick, may have never been so famous. did the big bird situation really hit home some. >> it did in the sen

that was clint eastwood talking to a chair. my second -- first of all, so i don't forget, i have to sort of stick up for ron paul quickly. i'm not one of those guys, but i did like that ron paul was the only candidate that wanted to end the wars and he talked about the war on drugs. he was so crazy on other things. >> he wanted to end the war except the war on people without insurance in the hospital. >> or people who don't have -- so, because of all that stuff, i kind of have this fantasy where ron paul and obama would do an '80s movie body switch where they learn a lesson. obama is like we should end the war on drugs and ron paul is like i don't hate women. my favorite moment was mitt romney. i think it was the 47% speech because republicans do this, like, like when george bush had a word faux pas, i didn't care. we laughed because we were like he doesn't know words. when mitt romney did it, he was telling the truth. that was brilliant. republicans are good at turning horrible things -- if they have a bill to destroy the environment it's called -- >> save the earth. >> or something like that. r
